These are so great! Do you have the link to the website? I would love to take a peek at more of her/his work.
This is what I would do. I would use an edible pen and draw the monogram on first then go over it with royal. Maybe you could use a template and trace it with the pen if you have trouble doing it freehand.
Hope this helps.
those are awesome I'd love to know where you found the photo too!!
Those are so nice....don't we all wish we could do them freehand?
It looks like it's done with chocolate rather than royal. Beautiful cookies.. I'd love to know where you found them too.
Looks like the letters are stencil and the letters are chocolate.
Cute design. I agree, looks like a stencil.
WOW!!! I saw some on the site that did look like they were stenciled, but these look free hand to me. I think I could do it free hand after some practice. Easier for me than trying to go over lines or dots. I love this look of these! Thanks for the link! LOTS of great stuff there. Food for thought! Ã
Michelle. Thanks for posting the site! Awesome photos!!! Terrific ideas!
That is a great site - both inspiring and intimidating!!
that web site is awesome! thanks for sharing it with us!
Thanks...these look great.
Wow! Beautiful cookies at that website! Thanks for sharing.
It looks like these would take forever to get them to look this great -- with either stencils or freehand they'd need a lot of touch up work....well, at least if I did them!
This is, by far, the most amazing site I've ever seen.. It's so modern & fresh-- They're my "cookie idol"!!!
AMAZING talent! Thanks for sharing the link!
They don't look like a stencil to me at all. They look free hand with melted chocolate. Not that my freehand would look that nice, but I have seen stenciled lettering.. and the edges aren't as smooth as these cookies have.
Thanks for posting the site!! Amazing
I'm a calligrapher and can see how it could be done...I think it would be easiest using a leaf tip and bending it slightly so the tip opening is all same size width. Hold the tip at a 45 degree angle to make the letter. I've thought about trying it but never have. I love how the letters bleed off the cookie. That's the part I can't figure out...how to start/stop without making a mess on the edge of the cookie.
This is how I would hold the icing bag and freehand it -- here's a youtube.com video of a calligrapher doing the letter A. (Only watch if you need help going to sleep
I often run off the sides of my cookies with royal icing, albeit accidentally, and it wipes right off with a damp paper towel.
Kim, were you going to attach a link for the video? Sounds great to me!!
